Rape is not taken seriously as a crime in this country. Japan's legal system has the most lenient attitude to rape among the developed nations. It seems that in this case the lawyers have decided that the association with rape has diminished the seriousness of murder too.

Carrying guns to a political meeting can only be seen as intimidation. There is no other reason to carry weapons to a meeting. At the moment, US and allied troops are in Afghanistan trying to ensure the democratic process against the violent, undemocratic interference of men with guns. Perhaps they now need to be on the streets of their homeland defending due democratic process from men with guns.

Guns are weapons and to carry them at a political demonstration, regardless of whether legal, is intimidation and can only be interpreted as such. Would you take a gun to McDonald's to exercise your right? Comparing guns to cars is sophistry. Guns are weapons, cars are not. If you hurt someone with a car, it is most likely an accident. Comparing background checks on gun buyers to checks on car buyers is also sophistry. Guns are not only used with intent to harm by nutters. They can be used with intent to harm in a calculated way or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
